Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 13, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Carroll County, Adria Kester and Gina Badding, Judges.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Schumacher, J., and Doyle, S.J.  Badding, J., takes no part.  Opinion by Doyle, S.J.  (9 pages)

            Brice Shrimpton appeals from his conviction of second-degree burglary claiming insufficient evidence and that the court considered an improper factor in sentencing him.  OPINION HOLDS: Viewing the evidence in a light most favorable to the State and the verdict, as we must, we find the evidence was sufficient to convince a rational jury that Shrimpton had the specific intent to commit an assault when he broke into the home.  The court’s consideration of Shrimpton’s lack of remorse for prior offenses is not grounds for vacation of the sentence.
